Tend Thy Sheep update

Here is a quick update of the project I am stitching through Merry Cox's online class. It is so delightful to stitch. Merry gives us many very helpful tips to create this simple beauty. I love it and the poor quality of my photos do not make the piece any justice. Trust me, it is very fine and delicate and has the charm I love in stitched pieces...




There are still two accessories to stitch : a pincushion and a needlebook. I could start stitching them but I prefer to wait for the last lesson to be posted so I can use all the tips and improve my stitching ;-)

Until later,
